The great Cuban pianist and composer Jesús “Chucho” Valdés presents the world premiere of La Creación (The Creation), which explores the story of creation according to the Regla de Ocha, the Afro-Cuban religion known as Santería. The piece includes elements of Santería ritual music, African music, the blues and what Valdés describes as “an atmosphere in the style of Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew.” In partnership with the Frost School’s Henry Mancini Institute Big Band.
